Introduction 



Location — Natural Features — Production — Scencr}^ 

The town of Winthrop-Pond Town — as originally 
called, was a part of the old grant of land known to all 
who are in anyway familiar with the land titles of the 
Kennebec Valley as the "Plymouth Grant" or the Ken- 
nebec Purchase. This grant was thirty miles wide, 
extending east and west fifteen miles each way from 
the Kennebec river. The limits north and south were 
from the vicinity ol Norridgework to Merrymeeting 
Bay. 

As to the natural features they are unsurpassed 
by any in the state of Maine. Its lake scenery is most 



6 HISTORICAL 

bcautilul. The large Lake INIaranacook joined with 
Cobbosseeeonte and the system whieh is lornied by 
their tributaries is a most interesting and valuable one. 
INIr. Thurston states in history that Hon. Benjamin 
Vaughan, ol Ilallowell, an Englishman by birth and by 
residence, lor a part ol his years, a member ol the 
English Parliment lor some years, pronounced the 
region the most interesting to be found in New Eng- 
land. From an elevation where the town-house is 
located with laNorable atmostpheric conditions, the 
White mountains ot New Hampshire and the hills ol 
Dixmont near the Penobscot ri\er are clearlv visible. 



Early Settlement 

According to the best information we can obtain 
INIr. Timothy Foster came here in 1764 and brought 
his wife and ten children in 17(^)5. He pitched his tent 
about eiirht rods from the Great Pond. Here the lirst 
Iramed building w^as put up. 

I'he next family which came was Squire Bishop, 
his wife and six children in the spring ol 1767. They 
were Irom Rehoboth, Mass. Families by the name ol 
Fairbanks, Stanley and l^dlen came Irom Attlc- 
boroug, ^lass. 

Though several kinds of game were plentx', the 
early settlers did not come to be hunters. They had 



HISTORICAL 7 

other desires and employments. The few inhabitants 
came into the wilderness to provide lor their families 
for whom they felt a lively interest. Had they been 
drones, thev would never thought of coming to Pond 
Town for a living, or have encountered the toils and 
hardships incident to such a situation. 

GRANTS OF LAND 

The township was not sold to a few proprietors 
who might speculate and defraud individual purchasers. 
The Plymouth Company or as they were then called 
the "Colony of New Plymouth" granted lots to indi- 
vidual settlers upon specified conditions. In examining 
the records of the Pl3-mouth Company, I find that on 
June II, 1766, a lot of land was granted to Timothy 
Foster, one mile long and one hundred poles wide, con- 
taining two hundred acres. It was lot No. 8, as de- 
lineated by a plan made by John McKecknie, who 
appears to have made the first survey of the town. 
The conditions of the grant were that the said Timothy 
Foster build a house not less than twenty feet square 
and seven feet stud, clear and bring to fit for tillage, 
five acres of land within three 3'ears from the date 
hereof, and actually upon the premises himself during 
said term, or in case of his death, that his hiers or some 
person shall dwell upon said premises during said term 
or that he or^ they or some person under him or them 
shall thereupon for seven years after expiration of said 



8 HISTORICAL 

three 3'ears, reserving to this property all mines and 
minerals whatsoever within the hereby granted prem- 
ises, with libert}' of digging and carrying off the same. 

Squire Bishop had Lot No. 17 granted him the 
same day on the same conditions. 

Eben Bly had Lot No. 18 the same day on the 
same conditions. 

Lot No. 10 to John Needham June 4, 1767 on the 
same conditions. 

Samuel Scott had Lot No. 13 reserved tor him, but 
September 14, 1768 it was transferred to Samuel Need- 
ham on the same conditions. 

October 12, 1768 Abraham W3'man had Lot No. 
12 granted to him on the same conditions. 

Nathan Hall had Lot No. 1 1 granted to him the 
same day on the same conditions. 

January 11, 1769 Robert Waugh had Lot No. 98 
granted to him on the same conditions. 

Timothy Foster, Jr., had Lot No. 5 granted him 
April 12, 1769 on the same condition. The same day 
Phillip Snow had Lot No. 30. 

Nathaniel Stanley, Lot No. 18; Amos Boynton, 
Lot No. 29; Peter Hopkins, Lot No. 9; Benjamin 
Fairbanks, Lot No. 6; John Chandler, Lot 51 and 52 
all granted the same day on the same conditions. 

Nathaniel Floyd had Lot No. 42 granted to him 
the same da\'. 

Stephen Pullen had Lot No. 56 granted to him 
December 14, 1768 on the same terms. 



HISTORICAL 9 

August 22, 1770 Ichabod Howe had Lot No. 70; 
Joseph Chandler had Lot No. 78; John Blunt had Lot 
No. 22 all on the same terms. 

August 27, 1770 Billy Foster had Lot No. 7. 

August 12, 1772 Jonathan Whiting had Lot No. 
loi; Joseph Baker had Lot No. 213; Samuel Stevens 
had Lot No. 139; Stephen Jones had Lot No. 14 on 
the same conditions. 

July 14, 1773 John Chandler had Lot No. 99; 
Elisha Smith had Lot No. 134; Squire Bishop had 
Lot 55; Unight Brown had Lot 64; Jonathan Whiting 
had Lot No. 200; Richard Humphrey had Lot No. 83 
all on the same conditions. 

July 9, 1777 Lot No. 247 according to John Jones 
survey was granted to the minister who should be 
settled in Winthrop. The conditions were that he 
should continue to preach the gospel in said town ten 
years from and after his settlement unless the said 
minister should be removed by death before the ex- 
piration of that term, provided, nevertheless, that in 
case a gospel minister shall not be settled in said town 
on or before the 3'ear 1780; then this grant is to be 
void and to revert back to this propert}'. This is the 

lot upon which Kezar lived in 1855. Also June 

9, 1777, Lot No. 57, Jones' survey containing about 200 
acres was by the proprietors of the Plymouth Company 
voted, granted and assigned to the town ot Winthrop 
for the use of the ministery in said town forever. The 
township was surveyed by Dr. John McKecknie. It 



lO HISTORICAL 

was laid out in lots one mile long and one hundred 
poles or rods wide. 

In 1776 some 3'oiinL;" men among whom were 
Stephen Pullen, Nathaniel Stanle}', Benjamin Fairbanks 
and probably Ebcnezer Bly and some others came to 
this place. In 1767 Nathaniel Fairbanks came and 
passed the summer and returned. In the spring John 
Chandler came and a number ot others. Prior to this 
there was no road Irom Pond Town to the Kennebec 
river. The bushes were cut away, and a line ol' spotted 
trees was their guide through the dense forest. A 
grist mill had been erected on the Cobbosseeconte 
stream, in what is now Gardiner, by Dr. Gardiner and 
son ol Boston. The people had to go all the way to 
Cobbossee to procure the grinding of all their meal, 
nor had the}' any other way ol conveying it except 
upon their shoulders, for there was not a horse in town, 
and there being no road they could not avail them- 
selves of the labors of their oxen. An incident has 
been related as haN'ing occurred during this period of 
privation and trial which may interest the ladies. 

In these days they were accustomed to all sorts of 
toil and hardships. Mrs. Foster, wife of the first settler 
undertook to assist her husband by going to Cobbossee 
to mill. Living on the margin of the great pond she 
crossed in a canoe to save distance, and the boat was 
taken back, b}' some means she was detained so long 
that on her return to the east side of the pond it was 
so dark that she could not find the horn which was 



HISTORICAL II 

kept to call for the boat and she was under the painful 
necessity of remaining in the woods all night. How 
man}' females of today have either the strength or the 
couraofe for such an adventure ? 

Mr. John Chandler came with his family in 1767. 
He had considerable property. Amos Stevens when a 
young man 18 years of age came with him as a hired 
man. Some two or three years later his father, Joseph 
Stevens, removed into the place with the rest of his 
family. They were from New Ipswich, N. H. Mr. 
Chandler was also from the place and his was the 
fourth family which settled in Pond Town. 

As yet they had no road to the Kennebec river 
and there being no saw mill in the place, they dwelt in 
log houses. In 1768 a road was cleared out so that 
the}' could pass with oxen and carwheels to the hook 
now Hallowell. Mr. Chandler built a saw mill on the 
stream where the cotton manufactury was later, and in 
the course of this year erected a grist mill. But to get 
the mill stones from the river was a great achievement. 
It is said to have required the whole strength of the 
place, both men and oxen during nearly a week. 

HARDSHIPS 

As specimens ot the hardships of the early comers 
we give the following: 

Nathaniel and Joseph Fairbanks in the month ol 
February took their guns, snowshoes and dogs and 



12 HISTORICAL 

started off in a westerly direction on a hunting excur- 
sion. Having gone a long distance the dogs went up a 
hill and gave notice that the}^ had found game. The 
hill they supposed to be in what is now the town ot 
Leeds. The dogs had found a noble moose w^hich the 
hunters soon killed and dressed. But the day was so 
far spent they could not return. They therefore buried 
their meat in the snow and camped for the night. The 
next day they took their meat upon handsleds and 
brought it home. This was a large moose ot 800 
pounds. 

Mr. Gideon Lambert was an early settler. He 
and his family had to subsist one season from planting 
time to ryCj harvest, on milk and herbs. During 
this time he fell four, and some say six acres of trees, 
and prepared them lor the burn the ensuing spring. 
He had been a soldier in the old French and Indian 
War. He aided in the defeat of the British army 
under the command of Abercombie, 1758. He also 
served in the war of the Revolution, after he came to 
Pond Town. 

Some families were so destitute ot provisions, that 
one at least, by the name of Delano, subsisted, tor a 
time on boiled beech leaves. Others were without 
bread trom sowing time until har\-est. Some of them 
had nothing tor themselves but milk and maple sugar. 
One neighbor sustained the children ot another neigh- 
bor on skimmed milk. A woman said, the day alter 
the birth of a child she dined on smoked moose meat 



HISTORICAL 13 

and turnip greens. Her husband had gone to procure 
them breadstuff, was gone longer than she expected. 
She had hnished the hist of her provisions. What 
could she do? Her neighbors could not assist her, for 
thev were in the same predicament. She was greatly 
at loss what course to take to save herself and the 
child. She adopted this singular method: She ate 
salt; that made her thirsty, and she drank more, and 
this procured nurishment for the child. 

The neighbors would hunt in company, and share 
the game between them, because there were times in 
which they could obtain pro\ isions so well in no other 
way. Mr. David Foster, in the month ot June was 
very destitute of food. He went to a brook and 
caught a sucker, which, while it was broiling gave a 
cheering fragrance. He dug up some of the potatoes 
he had planted to eat with his fish; but he found the 
fish ver}' soft, and the potatoes very water}-. But the}' 
sustained life. 

Mr. Squire Bishop came with his family to Pond 
Town in embarrassed circumstances, poor and in debt. 
But though for a season they were greatly stiaitened, 
and at times much disheartened, he at length accumu- 
lated property sufficient to enable him to pay his 
creditors the amount of their claims 

Rev. Mr. Eaton once came to preach the gospel to 
the poor, and impart the bread of life to these few in the 
wilderness, called on Mr. Bishop's family and found 
them very destitute. Mrs. Bishop went to the pigeon 



J. HISTORICAL 



net and obtained a competent supply. At another time 
Mr. Bishop's family were out of provisions, and none 
to be had nearer than Cobbossee. Mrs. Bishop spoke 
to her husband about going to procure something lor 
their sustenance. He was much discouraged, and said 
he was so feeble, that he could not get to Cobbossee, 
and they might as well die where they were. But the 
woman not so disponding, resolved to see what she 
could do. Necessity is the mother of invention. She 
bent up some pins, procured a pole, line and bait, took 
her babe in her arms and went to the pond, which was 
no <.-reat distance, and caught as many tish as she could 
conveniently carry with her child. On returning to the 
house, she heard a rustling in one ol the trees, and 
looking up she saw a racoon. Now what shall she do? 
If she "called to her husband to came with his gun, it 
would doubtless frighten the animal and he would 
escape, or if she went and told her husband the game 
mi-ht be gone. Perhaps some good angle suggested 
to her the plan, which was this: She took some oi her 
cloths and some of the child's and made such an image 
ns she could and placed it at the foot of the tree upon 
which the animal was, and hastened to the house. 
She said to her husband, "The Lord has sent us a 
coon; take your gun and go and shoot him." He re- 
plied, ''he will be gone to l'>oston betore 1 can get 
to him." "No he won't; you will fmd him there. 
The Lord has sent him. Mr. liishop took his gun and 
shot the racoon. They led upon the meat till INIr. 



HISTORICAL 



IS 



Bishop recovered strength and courage to procure a 
supply of lood. Thus providentially their lives were 
saved. 

Other incidents of a similar nature can be re- 
counted in large numbers to show the straightened 
circumstances, the grim determination, the tremendous 
courage and wonderful ingenuity of the settlers in the 
wilderness.

Military /Vlatters 

The town of Winthrop has a military record of 
which she can be justly proud. The War of the Rev- 
olution found Winthrop but a hamlet in the forests of 
the then sparsely settled District of Maine. But her 
record shows that her response was hearty and loyal. 
The following lines from a previous writer read as 
follows: 

"The War of the Re^'olution commenced in 1775. 
The 19th of this vear, the Battle of Lexington was 
fought. The report of this aroused the spirit of the 
young men of Winthrop. Not long after, Nathaniel 
Fairbanks, known for many years after as Col. Fair- 
banks, and eighteen other voung men, repaired to the 
headquarters of the Provincial armv at Cambridge, to 
defend their countr}-. Of these eighteen, four were 
sons of the first settler, Capt. Timothy Foster; Billy, 



HISTORICAL 27 

Eliphalet, Thomas and John who went as privates, and 
did not return to reside in Winthrop. Elijah Fairbanks 
was another. The names of the others are not known. 
Nathaniel Fairbanks was afterwards in the Regiment 
under the command of Arnold, of infamous memory, 
on an expedition to Canada. But becoming short of 
provisions, that part of the Regiment to which young 
Fairbanks belonged was ordered to return. 

The following indicates Winthrop's activity in the 
War of 1812 — 14: This town raised two companies 
for state defense. The one attached to Stone's regi- 
ment had lor captain, Asa Fairbanks; lieutenant, Solo- 
mon Easty; ensign, Jonathan Whiting; Benjamin 
Richard, Wadsworth Foster, John Richards and Oliver 
Foster were sergeants; Eliphalet Stevens, Thomas 
Stevens, Samuel Chandler and Columbus Fairbanks, 
coporals; Bezer Snell and Nathan Bishop, musicians; 
the privates numbered thirty-four men. 

The other compan}- was attached to Sweet's regi- 
ment. The captain was Elijah Davenport; lieutenant, 
Samuel Benjamin; ensign, Herman Harris; jabez 
Bacon, Levi Fairbanks, Joseph Heselton and Francis 
Perley were sergeants; Stephen Sewall, Benjamin 
King, Daniel Heselton and Caleb Harris were coporals; 
Waterman Stanley, Josiah Bacon, Jr., Stephen Abbott, 
Thomas Fuller and Simon Clough, musicians; the 
company contained forty-four privates.

rianufacturing Notes 

The town of W^inthrop has ever been well repre- 
sented in the line of manufacturinir. From the first 
she has been engaged in several lines. 



^2 HISTORICAL 

Of course the early years brought forth only 
the absolute necessities. These were, as every one at 
all familiar with the early years is aware, the 
saw and grist mill. No one of the towns at the time 
of the pioneer found it possible to dispense with these 
facilites converting the products ol nature into the 
forms that their needs demanded. John Chandler built 
the iirst saw mill in this town on the site of the woolen 
factory. This was running as early as 1768. Hushai 
Thomas was the builder of the next one which was 
gone ere the second decade of the 19th Century. The 
third saw mill was built on what was known as the 
dam number three. It was called the Sewell Mill and 
belonged to the Cotton mill, whose manager was 
Stephen Sewell. Mr. Dearborn built the iourth mill 
on the Old Canal, a saw mill which was later moved to 
the Cole dam number four. It was destroyed in 1853, 
by fn-c. After this he built on the other side of the 
stream, a mill, which also met the same late as its pre- 

decessor. 

The first grist mill in Winthrop was the result of 
the energy and perseverance of John Chandler. It 
was one of the provisions of his contract that he should 
build the mill, and he carried out the project and ran 
it lor mauN- years. Lake Maranacook was known 
for nearly a century as Chandler's Pond, from the name 
ofthe builder of the mills at its foot. The date is 
probabh not Uir from the same time as the first saw 
mill, 1768. John Chandler, Jr., erected another mill 



HISTORICAL 33 

on the west side of the stream a short distance below 
the site the old brick mill. The third srist mill was 
built on Perley Canal. The fourth was built by Messrs 
Clark & Shaw. The present grist mill was started in 
1 891 by H, & J. W. Maxim. It is located on the west 
side ot the village, and is now run by D. H. Maxim. 

The present saw mills in Winthrop are those of 
D. H. Maxim and S. G. Davis. 

Among the other early industries of Winthrop 
were the following: 

The old fulling mill of Cyrus Baldwin, built in 
1 791 and sold b}' him to Benjamin Allen and by him 
to Libert}' Stanley. Other owners were: John Cole, 
Hiram Cole, Mr. Merrill, Messrs. Benjamin & Davis, 
and Luther Whitman, the three latter parties owning it 
in partnership. The tire of 1853 destroyed this mill and 
its site was sold to Mr. Whitman. 

The old pottery was another of the early industries. 
It was located on the site of the stone blacksmith shop 
and was run b}- Thomas Fuller. 

The brick industry was started in town about the 
time of the building of the brick mill for. the cotton 
company. Those engaged in this industry were: Isaac 
Bonney, Major Elijah Wood, Charles Nelson, Oaks 
Howard and Nathan Cobb. 

The first tannery was built here prior to 1800 by 
Col. Fairbanks. Another one was erected by Samuel 
Clark, on the stream below where the woolen mill is, 
at a date not far from 1803. ^^ "^"^^^ succeeded by 



34 HISTORICAL 

his son, E. Miller Clark, who later sold to B. & L. 
Jones. 

The earriage business in this town has been an 
industr}' of note for almost the entire history ot the 
town, at least, throughout the past centur}-. It has been 
almost entirely in the hands of the Stanley lamily. 
The product of the Stanley shops has won an enviable 
reputation throughout the central portion of the state. 

The boot and shoe manufactur}' was once an im- 
portant industr}- here. The Winthrop product was 
largely for wholesale trade and was carried on largely 
by the loUowing: C. F. Wing, E. M. Clark, 1. Mat- 
thews & Co., S. N. Tufts & Co*;^, C. A. & B. F. Wing, 
S. J. Philbrook, J. Trufant, Isaac Nelson and Joshua 
Wing. 

The leading industries ol Winthrop on a larger 
scale ha\ e been the Winthrop Woolen and Cotton 
Manuiactur}', the Oil Cloth industry ol C. M. Bailey's 
Sons & Co., and the machine shop of the Benjamin 
Brothers. Of the first mentioned the following is a 
brief statehient ol the leadins; facts concerning- it. 

In 1S09 capitalists Irom Boston and Ilallowell 
bought propert}', both real estate and water rights at 
Winthrop \illage. The Winthrop Woolen and Cotton 
Manulactory was incorporated, and Amos Barrett was 
aj^pointed superintendent. During the next five 3X^ars 
the concern erected and e([uipped a lour storv brick 
mill. The industr\" continued to prosper for a lew 
years but the end of twent\ }ears forced the company 



HISTORICAL 35 

to close up and remain idle for about seven 3'ears. In 
1 841 or thereabout the property was bought by Messrs. 
Little and Son, E. Wood, Mr. Jones, and a New York 
man at a price of about $22,000 and once more put in 
operation, Mr. S. G. Lee being in charge. In 1846 the 
property went into the hands of Cushman, Lee, and 
Metcalf. Through various hands the mill passed till 
in 1865 when E. Wood died, Boston parties purchased 
their rights and organized the present Winthrop Mills 
Co. The capital stock was $150,000. The old build- 
ing was cut in two pieces and moved awa}' in 1882. 
The same year, the large cotton mill was built, 
and the dams number two and three were combined. 
The different a^^ents of this mill have been P. C. Brad- 
ford, John Mcllroy, and R. C. Mcllroy. The industry 
has been a large and important factor in the building 
up of the interests of the town of Winthrop. 

The oilcloth industry was started by Dr. Daniel 
and Moses Bailey, sons of Ezekiel Bade}', who made 
the oilcloth for tables, and the salesman was Charles 
M. Bailey. In 1842 C. M. Bailey bought his father's 
interest in the business and with his brother, Moses, as 
a partner continued the industry. After a time Moses 
bought out Charles M. and ran the business alone. 

In 1847 the business was again transferred to the 
hands of C. M. Bailey and he erected a complete new 
plant at Bailey ville. The year 1856 witnessed the de- 
struction of his plant at Baileyville. He had bought a 
short time before a plant at Winthrop built by Robbins 



36 HISTORICAL 

& Haines. wSix years later these works were also de- 
stro3ecl b}' tire. He next assumed the ownership ol 
the Benjamin & Davis machine shops at Winthrop vil- 
lage and soon added other buildings to resume the 
business. 

Moses Bailey's works at Baileyville were destroyed 
by tire and rebuilt within a }ear. C. M. Bailey bought 
Moses Bailey's entire plant. In 1891 the tire tiend 
again appeared. But the works were soon rebuilt. 
The business has ever continued to prosper, and toda}' 
tinds the Bailey tirm, now known as C. M. Baile3''s 
Sons & Co., one of the leading if not the largest con- 
cern making all kinds of oilcloth in this countr}'. This 
has been the leading manulacturing industr}" in Win- 
throp tor many years. The conij-yany has a factory 
doing a large business at Skowhegan.

BANKS 

The Winthrop Bank, incorporated in 1824, with a 
capital of $50,000, when the only banks in Kennebec 
county were at Hallowell, Augusta and Gardiner shows 
the business requirements of that day. Samuel Wood 
was president, Thomas J. Lee was cashier. Its busi- 
ness was done in the southeast corner room of Dr. A. 
P. Snow's present residence. After a short but hon- 
orable career, its owners decided to close its affairs. 
After redeeming most of its bills and settling with its 
depositors, Samuel Wood became responsible for the 
adjustment of the balance of its affairs. Mr. Lee, who 
was a teacher and a school book author of some note, 
opened a school in the room the bank had used, and 
attended to all the details of final settlement. The 
bank of Winthrop was incorporated under the state 



44 HISTORICAL 

laws in 1853. E. M. Clark, Stephen Sewell, Erastus 
W. Kellcy, David Stanley', Charles M. Bailey, Wel- 
lington Hunton, Benjamin Stockin, Stephen Gammon 
and Otis llaytord were direetors; Charles M. Bailey 
was president and David Stanley, cashier. The capi- 
tal stock was $50,000, increased to $75,000, and bills 
were issued. Alter doing a prosperous business for 
about ten years, the directors chose to close up their 
business rather than pa>' the ten per cent., on their cir- 
culation then re(|uired by the act of Congress. 

The National Bank ot Winthrop was organized 
with Charles M. Bailey, Da\ id Stanley, Ephraim 
Wood, Phillip C. Bradford and Levi Jones as directors. 
The doors were open for business No\ember 28, 1864, 
with Charles M. Bailey, president and John M. Ben- 
jamin, cashier. That portion oi the aifairs of the bank 
of Winthrop then imsettled was assumed by the new 
bank. At the end of twenty years the charter was 
renewed. In addition to these names, Moses Bailc}', 
Francis II. Mclntire, Charles A. Wing, Reuben T. 
Jones, George A. Longfellow and Henry Winslow 
were or have been directors. 

The Winthrop Savings Bank was chartered and 
began doing business in February, 1872, in the bank- 
ing room of the Winthrop National Bank. The trust- 
tees were: Le\i Jones, Charles A. Wing, Moses 
Bailey, F. II. Mclntire and Joseph S. Berry. Levi Jones 
was president and John M. Benjamin was treasurer.

HISTORICAL 45 

This institution was very prosperous till, on the night 
of July 2 2, 1875, the building was entered by profes- 
sional burglars, both safes were blown open, and cash 
and bonds taken in amounts that ultimatel}' made each 
bank a loser of over $10,000. The savings bank closed 
up its business and paid its depositors seventy-three 
cents on a dollar. 

The National Bank of Winthrop closed up its 
aftairs a lew years ago and was soon succeeded by the 
Winthrop branch of The Augusta Safe Deposit and 
Trust Co. 

On December 27, 1897 the Augusta Safe Deposit 
& Trust Co., of Augusta opened a branch at Winthrop 
and has since that time transacted a liberal amount of 
business. This is one of the strong banking institutions 
of the Kennebec Vallc}' and has a ver}' strong board 
of officials and directors. 

The Winthrop branch is under the efficient 
management of I. O. Gage, whose genialit}' and ex- 
cellent business ability has won for himself and the 
institution he represents, a host of friends. The first 
manasfer was A. H. Blair.

Church Account 

A previous writer has said that the town of Win- 
throp was but three weeks old when her people began 
to make provision for religious privileges, through 
public action. A committee by the town was ap- 
pointed to procure preaching for eight Sabbaths in the 
summer of 1771. We are told that Thurston Whiting 
was the first preacher to minister to the humble church 
supporters in the pioneer town. He continued to be 
the only minister to preach here till 1775. His salary 
was raised by tax. Jeremiah Shaw was the next 
preacher. A church council composed ot delegates 
from Harpswell, Pownalborough and New Castle was 
convened at Winthrop in 1776 and a church organiza- 
tion with twenty-six members was perfected. 

Rev. INIr. Shaw and Z. Colby were both called to 
the pastorate of the church, but declined. Rev. David 
Jewett was the first settled pastor, located here in 1782 
and died one year later. The church from this time 
on lor nearly twenty years was supplied with occa- 
sional sermons by Rev. E. Emerson and Rev. S. P^aton. 

The town voted to build a house of worship 36x40 
feet in size on lot No. 57 in 1774. This church was 
only partly finished, though it was used to a certain 
extent. In i7<Si the town was divided into two parts 
for the matter of worship and live years later the south 
church was decided upon, though it was not completed 
till 1794. 



HISTORICAL 47 

In 1 791 Readfield was made a town from territory 
that had been part ol Winthrop. Eight years later the 
legislature authorized the sale of the ministerial lands 
and the division of the proceeds for the support of the 
ministry. Winthrop's share was $840.85 which sum 
was placed at interest. 

From about this time on the history of the churches 
in Winthrop is a story that is told in the history of the 
different denominations. This we give in the main 
points, briefly, in the following lines. 



CONGREGATIONAL 

With the coming of the year 1800 the organization 
of a Congregational church was perfected at Winthrop. 
The act passsed the general court at Boston on January 
31 and had ninety incorporators. The ordained pastor 
was Jonathan Belden, a Yale College man, who came 
here this same year. The town voted this societ}' the 
use of the church on condition that it keep the build- 
ing in repair for the use of the town. 

The next pastor was David Thurston, who was 
ordained as pastor of this church in 1807. Mr. Thurs- 
ton continued to be the pastor for forty-five years. 

Names of the original members of the Congrega- 
tional Church, organized September 4, 1776: Jonathan 
Whiting, Elias Taylor, Joseph Stevens, Nathaniel

CHURCH OF^ THE UNITY 

Liberal theology was preached to a considerable 
extent in tliis town in the early years, by Universalist 
ministers who spoke in school houses. In 181 8 a 
society called the Union was formed by thirty-eight 
members of several towns in this \icinit\' and were in- 
corporated. Rev. Mr. Mace was the tirst pastor. In 
1837 the tirst Uni\ersalist Socict)- of Winthrop was 
organized with (Tcorge W. (^iimb\ as jKistor. Their 
church was erected a year later. 

The members ot this society were the following :

METHODIST 

The beginning of Methodism in Winthrop is due 
to the ministration of Jesse Lee, the great apostle of that 
denomination in Maine. The year 1793 is the date ol 
his arrival here. He preached in the Fairbanks neigh- 
borhood, probably on the 21st of October. The next

-esusuiSp 1903-4 



The population of the town of Winthrop has been arranged here- 
with in families where that arrangement has been possible. In 
these families, in addition to the resident living members, the names 
of the non-resident members are included. It should be borne in 
mind that this plan does not include the names of all former residents 
of the town of Winthrop, as the names of the non-residents appear 
only when one or both the parents are still living in town. At the 
end of the Census will be found the names of the non-residents 
with their present addresses, when such addresses have been given 
to us. The non-residents are indicated by the (*). 

Following the names of the population is the occupation. To 
designate the occupations we have used the more common abbrevia- 
tions and contractions. Some of these follow: Farmer — far; carpen- 
ter — car; railroad service — R R ser; student, a member of an ad- 
vanced institution of learning — stu; pupil, a member of a lower grade 
of schools — pi; housework — ho; laborer — lab; physician and surgeon 
— phy & sur; clergyman — clerg; merchant — mer; teacher — tr; black- 
smith — blk: clerk — cl; book-keeper — bk kpr; lawyer — law; mechanic 
— mech; engineer — eng; insurance — ins; maker — mkr; worker — 
w'kr; work — wk; shoe shop work — s s wk; Winthrop Mills Co. — W 
M Co; Bailey's Oil Cloth Works— B's O. 

This Census was taken expressly for this work during the month 
of December, 1903, by R. H. Remick, New Sharon, Maine.

APPENDIX A 

In the following lines we have compiled some 
few facts which we tailed to secure in time to include 
in the bod}' of the historical occount. 



Educational Notes 



The efforts of the early comers to the town ol 
Winthrop indicated, by their actions toward providing 
for religous services and educational facilities, a most 
intelligent citizenship. 

In connection with the schools, we learn that the 
year 1783 saw the town divided into seven different 
school districts, where at first the schools were held in 
private houses. Benjamin Brainard was the first paid 
schoolmaster. He taught first in the private house of 
Benjamin Fairbanks, now owned by John Martin. 



98 HISTORICAL 

The erection of a schoolhouse in town was first 
mentioned in a town warrant in 1789, when a sum of 
£160 was raised. This was the New England pound 
which was equivalent to about $3.33 1-3. At this 
same meeting the number of districts was increased to 
ten. A house was erected in each of them. An ad- 
ditional appropriation w^as made the following year to 
complete this undertaking. ^Ir. Benjamin states that 
the iirst schoolhouse built in the villasre under this 
plan was erected on what is now Main street, and was 
situated not far from the Methodist church. It stood 
until i8oi. Its size was probabl\- about 16x20 feet. 

The ve<ir 1785 brought out an appropriation ol 
$100.00 and the i oil owing year the same amount. The 
appropriation was $332.71. 

In 1801 a new school building w^as built in the 
villaye. Another was built in 181S, thus one beiuif ol 
brick and containing two rooms In 18^4 there was a 
wood stor\' built upon the brick buildinir. This was 
the \illage schoolhouse till 1873 when the present 
$14,000 school building was erected. 

One [ennis Towle lelt a property' to establish an 
institution to be known as Towle Academy. The 
amount was iriSulFicient to carr}' out the project, so the 
town raised the additional cost and erected a town hall 
in wdiich the institution was conducted ior about 12 
years. The date of its building was about 1855. ^fhis 
building is now used as a sub-primar\" school. 

At East Winthrop Sutler's Eemale Academy, pri- 



HISTORICAL 



99 



vate school for 3oung ladies, was conducted b}- Rev. 
John Butler. It was a model school for the times, and 
became deservedly popular and drew to East Win- 
throp many students from the best families in the state. 
The town of Winthrop is today possessed ol the 
very best educational facilities and is progressive in 
every wa}'.
